Frequently asked questions

Below are the answers to a number of questions. In addition, the answers to more specific questions are listed among the various target groups.

I can not download a publication. How do I solve this?

This can have several causes. The most common reasons are antivirus software or settings from your internet browser that block the download. It is also possible that a publication is protected or that the required program to open a publication is not on your computer. We therefore advise you to download the file, if possible, via another computer or internet browser. Is this not possible? Send us a message via contact@hbokennisbank.nl with a print screen of the error message. We are happy to help you.

Where can I offer my publication?

To make your own graduation work available at the HBO kennisbank, you need to offer your graduation project to your university of applied sciences. A condition for this is permission from your graduation company and your university of applied sciences must also take part in the HBO Kennisbank. Whether that is the case, you see in the overview of participating universities of applied sciences. The provision of materials can often be done through the secretariat of your study program or via the library of your college. For more information on this topic, please contact the contact person of your university.

My publication has disappeared from the HBO Knowledge Base, how is that possible?

A statutory retention period of 7 years applies to graduation products. After that time, it may be that your graduation product was deleted in accordance with this period, and thus disappeared from the HBO Knowledge Base.

Not every university  follows the same guidelines. For more information about the policy regarding the retention period, please contact the contact person of your university.

The link between the file and the information about the publication is not correct. How do I solve this?

How can I change the rights under which I make my publication available?

The publications that are shown at the HBO Kennisbank are stored in repositories (digital repositories) of the university colleges. You can also change the rights under which you make your publication available after placement on the HBO Kennisbank (for example from ‘all rights reserved’ to a ‘Creative Commons license’). For this, contact the contact person at your university. You can also contact this contact person if you would like to withdraw your consent to availability. Your publication will then no longer be offered via the HBO Kennisbank.

Would you like to know more about the different Creative Commons licenses?

Take a look at this website.

I would like to apply for a personal persistent identifier. How does that work?

A persistent digital identifier distinguishes you from other researchers. A unique identifier also makes it possible for other systems to easily share research.

  • ISNI (International Standard Name Identifier): the ISO certified global standard number for identifying the millions of contributors to creative works. ISNI’s are assigned to you by your library.
  • ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID): a persistent digital identifier that you own and control yourself. For more information on how to apply for an ORCID, see this clip.

Would you like to know more about this subject or request a persistent identifier directly? Then get in touch with the contact person of your university. They are happy to provide you with information.
